The recent research work on “Gas Membrane Market Outlook and Opportunities, 2019- 2025 presents a qualitative and quantitative analysis on prospects and dynamics of the market. The research is documented with descriptive approach on tentative operations, transformations in business models and organization issues. The framework is segmented based on types, applications, materials, countries, key players of the market, latest trends and market drivers.

Global Gas Membrane market definition and scope

Gas membranes are primarily engaged for the application of separation or selection of gases, with the efficiency of gas membrane being primarily dependent on high permselectivity, usability in multiple gas mixtures, high stability and heat. Gas membranes are widely adopted across distinctive gas refining and processing utilities, chemical and pharma manufacturing facilities, food processing industries and others.

The overall Gas Membrane Market is classified on the basis of Type (Spiral-Wound, Hollow Fiber and others), By Application (CO2 Removal from Natural Gas, N2 Generation & O2 enrichment, H2 Recovery, Vapor/Gas and Vapor/Vapor Separation, Others) and Geography in terms of value share and volumes.

Global Gas Membrane market segmentation

The gas membrane market is segregated based on trending types such as Spiral-Wound, Hollow Fiber and others.

Among different types of membranes, Hollow Fiber gas membranes account for macro market share in the forecast period to 2025 and are basically opted for H2 recovery from refineries, dehydration of air, Co2 removal from natural gas and others.

Spiral-Wound gas membranes primarily cater its application for Co2 removal from natural gas and vapour/gas separations. Honeywell and Fujifilm manufacturing companies are focusing on spiral wound gas separation membrane for pipeline, refining, petrochemicals, gas & hydrogen applications.

Further, gas membrane market is analysed across various applications including CO2 Removal from Natural Gas, N2 Generation & O2 enrichment, H2 Recovery, Vapor/Gas and Vapor/Vapor Separation and others.

Among emerging applications, CO2 removal from natural gas is leading and is set to evolve rapidly over the forecast period. In addition, Gasification plants, Methanol Production, Methanol cracking, CO2 capture from stack and other applications are rapidly opting CO2 removal gas membranes for efficient filtering and processing.

Furthermore, N2 Generation & O2 enrichment application is also projected to witness strong demand growth, predominantly driven by competitive semiconductor industry for back–end operations and device makers augmented with demand from rising food and beverage industry for packaging and storage applications.

In addition, Hydrogen recovery caters its application in hydrogen purifications in refineries, ammonia purge gas, methanol purge gas, GTL (gas to liquid) applications and others. The vapour/gas separation membranes are attracting new investments as they can justify high costs involved in inorganic membranes.

Global Gas Membrane market key trends and drivers

The global gas membrane market generated revenue of $1.7 billion during 2018 and is eminently driven by growing socio-economic activities, emerging manufacturing industries, large deployment of gas membranes in power sector along with strong growth of food processing, packaging and other end-user sectors.      

Further, the increase in enhanced oil recovery applications with strong refining capacity, excavating mining applications and planned LNG export terminals are set to sustain the gas membrane market in the future period.

The ongoing trend for environment awareness instils the use of CO2 removal and H2 recovery membranes and is largely being adopted across hydrocarbon sectors for filtering and separation applications.

In addition, increased adoption of biomass and biogas processing augmented with natural gas treatment drives gas membrane market to exploration and outreach. The PROBIOGAS initiative in Brazil and ongoing biogas based applications in South America offer strong potential in the region.

The increased demand for well-being and hygiene has increased the focus on water treatment and purifying applications, water laboratories are largely adopting membranes for processing water more efficiently and environmental-friendly through oxygen and ozone.

North America Gas Membrane Market outlook and growth opportunities

North American is witnessing strong demand for gas separation membranes driven by mining applications and strengthening economic and industrial activities. Between 2018 and 2025, the region is estimated to project significant growth of 7.68%.

Europe Gas Membrane Market outlook and growth opportunities

The CO2 removal membranes are primarily adopted by European oilfield processing units for enhanced oil recovery and natural gas transmission functions, in addition, some countries are also opting H2 recovery filters for high end refining operations.

Asia Pacific Gas Membrane Market outlook and growth opportunities

Asia Pacific owns the third largest market value worldwide for gas membranes with most major companies reporting significant revenue sales growth. In India, gas membrane market is largely drifting by rising natural gas demand coupled with steady growth for CO2 removal applications.

In China, low cost production and shorter shipping distances drive gas membrane associates to an ideal sourcing destination; hence Asian buyers are recording steady revenue sales from forecast period to 2025.

In addition, South East Asian markets are also emerging as main contributors to the revenue, with strong growth prospects over the forecast period.

Global Gas Membrane Market Challenges and Key strategies of Companies

Gas membrane market is being challenged by ongoing closures of oil and gas refineries, dwindling hydrocarbons demand augmented with inclination towards bio-energy and environment friendly renewable fuels.

Further, laboratory development activities focusing on commercialization of new materials remains a major challenge. Despite major companies focusing on various organic, inorganic and mixed materials with different designs in gas separation applications, scaling up remains a major issue. In addition, small scale developers are facing challenges in identifying commercial development partners for their designs.

The other critical restraint for gas membrane market is it is largely capital intensive, with small and local players often facing challenges of economies of scale for business expansion and new market entries.

Manufacturers focusing more on developing innovative Gas Membranes

Latest materials are being assessed and new manufacturing technologies are being researched to reduce the width of membranes and reduce the pore sizes.

Current focus of R&D is on using polyether, polyethylene, polycarbonate, polyphenylene and others. In addition, adaptation of inorganic materials including Zeolite and ceramic gas membranes are also witnessing strong progress.
